NATIONAL CHILDHOOD OBESITY AWARENESS MONTH
National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month offers opportunities for families to prevent childhood obesity early and to address the issue early. Children who have obesity issues are more likely to have those same issues as adults. Addressing them now prevents lifelong health issues such as diabetes, certain cancers, heart and sleep disorders.
Children with obesity may face physical, emotional and financial obstacles in the future, as well.
